Poem: Recognition


Did you know I see the world like you?
 We stare at the crowd like tigers in a cage.
 Their dead eyes judge us pitiful,
 But the bars wrap all around them.

Sometimes I hurt like you do too.
 Like the rain inside could drown all life,
 And wash away a thousand dreams.
 For all the reasons, I can’t say why.

I hate looking in the mirror just like you.
 Wish I could shatter it all over the floor,
 Scoop up the sparkling pieces of me,
 And make myself again from scratch.

I have a hidden closet inside, like you.
 Frightened child, lost in memories.
 I never knew she was locked in there,
 Until I saw her mirrored in your eyes.

Please know, I tried to break your chains.
 With stumbled words and whispered prayers.
 Each time you falter from the pain,
 I’m here, just call my name.
